We would appreciate 48 hours notice if you need to cancel so that we may open your appointment time to other patients. If you cancel with less than 48 hours notice, we will waive the fee for the first missed appointment, charge you half the cost of the visit for the second missed appointment, and the full cost of the visit for any missed appointments thereafter.
- You do not need a doctor’s prescription to see a Physical Therapist in California. You can be treated by a Physical therapist for 12 sessions or 45 calendar days, whichever occurs first. Beyond this period, you are able to continue with Physical Therapy only after having received an in person examination and approval of your Physical Therapist’s plan of care by a physician, osteopath or podiatrist, certified in the state of California.
- Some health insurance companies still do require a physician’s referral in order to cover Physical Therapy services. We will help you determine if you insurance company requires a Physical Therapy prescription prior to your first visit.
- Outstanding patient outcomes: We are in the top 10% nationally when we compare the amount of improvement we see in a patient’s function per visit compared to other clinics across the country.

- Individualized, focused care approach: We offer a one (1) hour appointment for evaluations AND follow up visits. This allows you and your Physical Therapist to thoroughly address your concerns. You won’t have aides or assistants taking over your care, and you won’t have pre-programmed therapy.
- Quality care valued: Our costs reflect the time, expertise, and energy we devote to you and improving your quality of life.
Agile is one of the few clinics in the Bay Area that offers individualized, patient-centered care. All of our team therapists are amongst the best in the profession. Following a comprehensive evaluation, your therapist will work with you to develop a unique treatment plan tailored to your specific condition. While our rates may be higher, the individualized, focused care approach we believe in at Agile often results in far superior outcomes in fewer visits than other clinics.
Our goal is to have all our billing submitted to your insurance within 7 days of your visit. From there, it is in the hands of your insurance company. On average, we see insurance companies process claims within thirty (30) to forty-five (45) days.
